Six Sentence Sunday


As always, my thanks to everyone who stops by. I appreciate your company and your comments.

This week I am again posting six sentences from my current WIP. Today's offering carries on from last week.

Unable to sit still a moment longer, Deborah jumped up from the settee and stalked towards her sibling. “You come here uninvited and have the effrontery to demand to see my books, and to interview Brandon, my estate manager.” Fighting her desire to smack him in the face she whirled away and back again. “You’re coming it a bit too strong, my lord,” she said with all the hauteur she could muster.

“I didn’t know it had come to waiting for an invitation before I could visit my oldest sister.”

As promised I came rushing to read your excerpt, Sherry...after you hooked me last week. It strikes me that this is a book I so want to read. Thanks for sharing!

Oo, was that a dig - his 'oldest' sister? I'm not liking this brother! Great snippet.

Lisa Fox said...

What a little prick! He sounds terrible. But great six!

Tense scene with a lot of character clues. He's a jerk and she's feisty enough to tell him so. :)

The brother sounds like a jerk, but Deborah has spunk. Well done!

That's a great six, but can I say I just LOVE "hauteur"? *scribbles note to self* LOL. Wonderful!

Sherry Gloag said...

Dianne, I have been considering a major re-write on this story and your comment kinda confirms the need for this. I think I can ditch the 2nd sister and keep the integrity of the story then this kind of confusion will disappear.
Thanks.
